Zerkalo

Another new Heinrich Mueller involved MySpace project has come to light. Zerkalo is a project said to be co-produced by Victoria Lukas and Heinrich Mueller. They list their location as being Germany/USA and France. According to their site they have been lurking here since November 2006, although the video they have up right now on YouTube for 'Warning You' was only uploaded in the last few days. They might have had one up before this however but it's not viewable now, but am not sure on this. I think that Victoria Lukas is a member of a group called Weltgeist as well but uses a different name for it, they have a MySpace page, of course, link below. 'Warning You' is an instrumental track which is pretty Muellerish I guess, minimal, atmospheric, dark, but more old school Mueller than new if you know what I mean. This track is also on their audio player plus one more, 'Watch It Burning Again'. This one has a female voiced lyric and is pretty short but very sweet. It's done very much in the vein of Zwischenwelt/Black Replica. They are also actively touring, check the dates on their site for yourselves. I found a link to footage of one of their previous gigs and not surprisingly it appeared to feature only Victoria Lukas. On their site and even in the video which is made up of scenes of Andrei Tarkovsky films they make it clear that they are influenced by this director and the type of images he made his own with his trademark long and lingering shots. They have two pretty desolate looking photos on their site as well, see one below.

I'm just wondering, as you probably are, how many more of these collaborative projects are out there because when I do get up to date with the Heinrich Mueller releases I am planning to go into detail concerning all of his side projects, have to keep myself busy somehow. But in this case I might have an advantage in that I happen to be a bit of a Tarkovsky fan ever since a reviewer in The Wire said of a band I was in at the time called Memory Cells (almost 10 years ago now) that it reminded him of the work of just that director. After that I decided I should probably make it my business to see some of his work. I know that one of the films they used footage from for the video is 'Mirror'(1975), which is said to be one of his more autobiographical works. Also their name, Zerkalo, is the Russian for Mirror and is an alternate title. Not that this is hard to work out in the age of the internet! I guess we should keep an eye on this project as well then.

Also a remixed version of the Arpanet album 'Inertial Frame' might be in the offing soon. I was sent a link to a remix from it but I couldn't find any reference to it on web or even on the Record Makers site, so give it a listen as well while you wait. No sign of the Der Zkylus 12” being released either, should be anyday.

Someone hotlinked me this Arpanet track last night, it's really nice. I don't think it's on any of the released albums either.
